Five Cards

Hi I have five cards to share with you. I had a burst of creative energy on Saturday and made 4 of the 5 cards below using the last of my Stampin' Up sets that had not seen ink. So here we go:

This card was made from a scrap of left over paper from the Paisley Petals collection. I just fell in love with that white flower. I added some Smooch Glitz to the petals, an embossed sentiment from Word Play on vellum and sent this to my longtime friend, reminiscing about times past.

This card uses the Mixed Bunch stamps, the Blossom punch, and the sentiment is from Word Play.   I used Hero Arts Neon Purple ink which was given to me by Judy through a card swap (Thanks I love the color!)

I started my paper crafting with scrap-booking 6 years ago. I started making cards about 14 months ago.  Scrap-booking gave me a love of patterned papers, mixing and combining them.  This card uses two papers from the By the Garden paper set. I used Marina Mist ink for the flower and sentiment; both from the Thinking of You Stamp set. Whisper white and Pacific Point card stock for the center oval which was cut with spellbinder dies. I added a small bit of bling from Colorbok-Flashy Finds. (I don't know why, but I am always drawn to monochromatic looks!)

Hubs and I just celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. I made this card for him. Our wedding colors were black white and red...though this seems to be a bit of an orangy red...I loved the puffed up hearts, the paper is from the Sweet Shop Collection . The sentiment is from Word Play, the sequins from Ellen Hutson, and I used Versa Fine ink.

We are attending a high school graduation today, and I had made the graduation card a few months ago, but I didn't fall in love with it.  So I tried again, this one I fell in love with. I used the school colors, sentiment in Night of Navy, Cardstock also Navy, patterned paper is from Just Add Cake, and the sentiments from Word Play and Teeny Tiny wishes. The numbers were die cut using Sizzix' Wanted Alphabet.  The grad cap was cut by hand and eyeballed, the tassel is twine from Target's dollar spot and the brad from Making Memories.

Thanks for stopping by.
